If there's one thing that Warframe will likely never run out of, then it's the number of crazy ideas that Digital Extremes have for the game's titular combat proxies. This latest one, for example, is themed after the Big Bad of Warframe - the Sentients.
The Revenant Warframe is designed to ape some of the key abilities of the massive Eidolon Sentient, which can be found roaming the Plains of Eidolon, logically. With the capability to both subvert and annihilate its enemies, Revenant may prove to be quite a toolbox indeed.
The Revenant comes packing a standard selection of four unique abilities. Enthrall, for example, can be used to convert a target enemy into the Frame's thrall, who will aid it in combat, while Mesmer Skin will allow it to redirect taken damage and stun its attackers, who can in turn be Enthralled at no energy cost.
Reave, on the other hand, will prove to be a useful area control skill, as it hurls the Revenant through enemies, as well as leeching shields and health. Finally, Danse Macabre is the ultimate kill-switch, erupting Eidolon energy beams from the Revenant to slice enemies to pieces in a light show like no other.
Revenant's signature weapon is the Sentient Phantasma beam shotgun, which fires irradiated plasma in a continuous stream with an impressive status chance (39%). Update 23.5.0, or Mask of the Revenant, will also feature a number of cosmetics: a fully-fledged Sentient armour set, a Kavat armour, and an alternate helmet for the Revenant.
Mask of the Revenant is expected to release today or tomorrow, so stay on your toes.
